Balasun Estate Second Flush Darjeeling TGBOP1 from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

35 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Aug. 28th, 2022

This presents a very pleasant aroma but very little flavor. It is a mild, bland Darjeeling that should have been offered at a low price.

Chai Walla from SerendipiTea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 13th, 2022

Like a lot of SerendipiTea's products, this is both organic and kosher. The recipe is straightforward: black tea, ginger, cinnamon, anise, cloves, and cinnamon. Prepared the traditional way (which I learned how to do during a visit to India), this makes a well-balanced, flavorful, and pleasantly sweet and spicy chai. ...

Congo Bongo from SerendipiTea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 12th, 2022

This is an Indian black tea flavored with organic coconut, organic marigold/calendula, and coconut and mango flavoring - so it is very tropical in character. It was quite nice with milk and sugar, or with just sugar, sort of dessert like. I bet it would be good on ice as well.

Upton East Frisian Sunday Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Assam, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2022

This is a medium strength tea with some light, woody tannins. It goes best with milk, but it works with lemon and sugar also. It has vanilla in it, and that helps give it a nice aroma, and has a subtle impact on the flavor. Overall, it is a good, versatile tea that I would buy again.

Singbulli Estate Second Flush (2020 EX-38) Organic Darjeeling SFTGFOP1 (TD148) from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 24th, 2021

Part of Upton's Great Tea Race Collection, this Darjeeling crosses the finish line with a fine aroma and impressive flavor. There are notes of caramel, fresh leaves, and mild tannins. It is very expensive however - it costs 3 times the price of an ordinary Darjeeling, but does not offer 3 times the quality imo. Nice...

C.T.C. Irish Breakfast Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 30th, 2019

A blend of Assam teas that turns out to be smooth and flavorful, and offered at an excellent price by Upton. It has been one of their top sellers, for a long time, and it is not hard to see why. This does not have the rough edges or iron notes that some breakfast teas have. It is earthy, nutty, and not a challenge t...

This has a nice aroma, but a pretty insipid flavor with a little bitter bite to it.

Traditional Masala Chai from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 22nd, 2019

This is a finely ground mainstream Indian tea with the spices (cinnamon, cardomom, ginger, and clove) mixed in with it. It is not as good as making chai with fresh spices, but this makes a perfectly acceptable masala chai.

Solid Assam, with a woody flavor and some ironic tannins, but still smooth. Certainly worth the bargain price.

Thanks to Greg and Inge for this Christmas gift. A malty and complex Assam that feels very nice on the palate. This went very well with soy milk, which is not what always happens when I add soy milk. A treat for sure.

Mine was called Doomni Estate Black Tea, but it has the same number as what is on here. A smooth, lightly nutty Assam. Good.
